| INTRODUCTION TO INCLUSION
Introduction to Inclusion is an overview of inclusion, generally presented as a first module in a four-part series. This course reviews the history of support services for children with disabilities (medical model vs. empowerment model), the philosophy of inclusion, person-first language and the benefits of inclusive programs.
| RESPECTFUL ACCOMMODATIONS
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) addresses the necessity of making accommodations for children with disabilities so that they can participate in community programs. This course provides an overview of the philosophy of inclusion, insight into what constitutes a "respectful accommodation" and practical techniques to use immediately in your program.
| SUPPORTING POSITIVE BEHAVIOR
Supporting Positive Behavior addresses the fact that all children display some type of behavioral challenge. However, some children have a more difficult time managing their behavior, and often times this may be related to the disability they have. This course focuses on how to prevent negative behaviors before they occur and how to create environments that offer positive behavior support to children with behavioral challenges.
| PARTNERING WITH FAMILIES
When children and youth come to your program they come attached to a family unit. Learning to create partnerships with children’s families will help you provide the best service to all children. Learn to communicate successfully with parents, how to set up your relationship for success and what to do when challenges arise.
